If you have taken the time to read any of these reviews you already realize this is no ordinary hotel. In fact it isn't a hotel at all, it is truly a castle. Salvatore, Antonio and Shelley treat you as if you are guests in their home. Indeed you are, as it is their home as well. The castle is on the historical registry,so the renovations are held to a very high standard, but still the rooms remain very warm and inviting. I love that no two are alike. We were fortunate enough to experience two dinners prepared by Salvatore. We happened to pass him on our way to breakfast and he was already preparing that evenings meal. We returned from a day out of a picture book and he was still cooking! He prepped all day and let me just say it was well worth every minute he put into it!! They were our favorite dinners of the entire 16 day vacation. But truly the highlight of our stay was the family atmosphere that pervades everything they do. I had spent 4 months searching, investigating and planning for the perfect 20th anniversary trip for my wife and I. The rooftop suite at The Grand Tremezzo Hotel in Lake Como followed by a week on the Champs Élysées just couldn't compare to the 4 magical days and nights spent at the castle.
Needless to say, my wife thinks I am brilliant and of course we have made plans to return.
